Joseph Mellot Sancerre Le Rabault Rosé 2013, Loire, France

Joseph Mellot Sancerre Le Rabault Rosé 2013, Loire, France (£16.99 Famous Wines, Eagle Wines, The Leamington Wine Company, Kingsgate Wines)
Very shy initially, with muted fruit, and the whiff of sulphur still speaking of a very young wine. But a couple of hours after opening, suddenly the fruit emerges, raspberry and blackcurrant, with a leafy, floral edge in there too and a touch of citrus on the finish. B+
